INEOS Oligomers is the world's largest merchant marketer of polyalphaolefins (PAO) synthetic fluids marketed under the trade name Durasyn.
INEOS has Durasyn PAO production plants in LaPorte (Texas, USA) and Feluy (Belgium). Both sites are integrated with INEOS’ Linear Alpha Olefin (LAO) product line, which provides the feedstock for the production of Durasyn fluids.
The INEOS polyalphaolefin business has a global presence, with regional commercial teams located throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. We employ a highly experienced technical group, an experienced and professional network of local sales staff and local distributors to assure true global reach.
Durasyn polyalphaolefin synthetic fluids have greater film thickness at high temperatures than comparable Group I, Group II or Group III mineral oils. This results in superior high temperature protection for equipment lubricated with polyalphaolefin-based synthetic lubricants. Lubricants containing Durasyn polyalphaolefin also achieve full lubrication more quickly at low temperatures than comparable mineral oil-based lubricants due to their superior low temperature viscometrics and lower pour points. This is an important performance benefit given that a high percentage of component wear occurs during cold equipment start-up.
PAO-based synthetic lubricants are highly shear stable and are generally acknowledged to have better thermal / oxidative stability than comparable mineral oil-based lubricants. Improved oxidation resistance yields lower viscosity increase in service and reduces the deposit and varnish forming tendencies of lubricants.
Durasyn PAOs are used in a wide variety of industrial and automotive applications including passenger car motor oils, wind turbine lubricants, heavy-duty diesel engine oils, fiber optic cable compounds, transmission fluids, compressor oils, hydraulic oils and gear oils. Durasyn PAOs are also authorized for use as components of food grade lubricants and are registered with the National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) under H1 and HX-1 classifications.
